Research themes

Research at the Department of Computer Science is classified into eight broad themes.

Within (and across) themes, research is conducted by teams of people, or individually, as best suits the staff, the topic, and the funding. If the research has a specific target, or an end-date, then it is presented here as a project; otherwise, it is presented as an activity.

The Department's research activity was evaluated in the most recent REF-2014. In terms of power, which assesses both the quality and quantity of research, Oxford is ranked 3rd for computer science. The Department returned 74 individuals in REF-2014, compared to only 56 in the last exercise, in RAE2008 - a 32% increase. The grade point average ranking of the department, given on a scale from 1 to 4, increased from 3.15 to 3.34. In total, 53% of the department's overall research activity was given the highest possible ranking of 4* ("world leading"). Full news is available here.
